New York 1982. It’s 1:30 a.m. on a freezing February night. Struggling novelist Harry Levine comes furiously at the door of his best friend, photographer Jake Manheim’s Greenwich Village apartment. Harry has all of a dollar and a half in his pocket and Jake owes him a substantial amount of money. Jake has even less money on hand, but what is worse he has not, he declares, read the manuscript of Harry’s latest novel…a work on which Harry’s last hope is pitched. Or has he? Relentlessly, obsessively the desperate Harry probes the sardonic world-weary Jake until the truth is finally revealed. A tragic comedy that explores the nature of friendship.
